Blagojevich named former state Attorney General Roland Burris to fill Obama's vacant Senate seat. Democrats in the Senate had vowed not to allow Blagojevich's pick to be seated, but that was before named anyone. Most people on both sides of the political spectrum are disappointed if not outraged by his action. Legally he was entitled to make a selection, but the cloud over Blagojevich's head surly taints his choice. Now we have to wait to see what the Senate will do, but if it is anything accept let his pick stand, it will almost certainly be something not seen in my life time and maybe even the history of our country.
